>From Martin Michlmayr from the message I quoted:

        it's much harder to make a two-year commitment and from personal
        experience I can tell you that being DPL takes a lot of energy
        and time.  I think a year is good and if the person wants to do
        it again they can simply stand for re-election.
Martin commented on the proposal of making the DPL sit for two years. I
would assume (as a potential candidate) that I would be hesitant to run
for a two year period even if one year was as 2IC or vice-DPL: the
commitment is still for two years, and it's almost as big a commitment
as two years as full DPL would be.
